Trichoceros antennifer mounted FS
species - Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia
This is one of ten species of "Fly Orchids", so named because of their resemblance to the pesky insect. Trichoceros antennifer has flowers around 1" or less in size held upright on a wiry 6-10" stem that makes the fly illusion complete. The flowers, one to several in number opening successively, can appear at almost any time, but seem to be more regular Winter-Spring. The funny little plants have their round pseudobulbs above their leaves and the growths are widely separated by a tough stolon. They are also wanderers, climbing up poles or other nearby plants. They like dappled to semi-bright light and although they grow well with temperatures that seasonally drop into the low 40's also do well with night temperatures of 60 degrees. Day temperatures can range into the 80's. Because plants this offering are mounted simply, on pieces of redwood lath, they will benefit from regular watering and/or frequent misting. As needed, the lath came be affixed to a larger or longer piece of the same wood. They can be divided easily and potted as you wish.
